GeoSparkSQL supports many parameters. To change their values,

  1. Set it through SparkConf:
    sparkSession = SparkSession.builder().
          config("spark.kryo.registrator", classOf[GeoSparkKryoRegistrator].getName).
  2. Check your current GeoSparkSQL configuration:
    val geosparkConf = new GeoSparkConf(sparkSession.sparkContext.getConf)


    • Use spatial index (currently, only supports in SQL range join and SQL distance join)
    • Default: true
    • Possible values: true, false
    • Spatial index type, only valid when "" is true
    • Default: rtree
    • Possible values: rtree, quadtree
  • geospark.join.gridtype
    • Spatial partitioning grid type for join query
    • Default: quadtree
    • Possible values: quadtree, kdbtree, rtree, voronoi
  • geospark.join.numpartition (Advanced users only!)
    • Number of partitions for both sides in a join query
    • Default: -1, which means use the existing partitions
    • Possible values: any integers
  • geospark.join.indexbuildside (Advanced users only!)
    • The side which GeoSpark builds spatial indices on
    • Default: left
    • Possible values: left, right
  • geospark.join.spatitionside (Advanced users only!)
    • The dominant side in spatial partitioning stage
    • Default: left
    • Possible values: left, right
